    OK, back on topic. How far off are the specs that I saw in my Nocturnal Treomission do you think? I bought a LifeDrive, and that screen is really cool. It's amazing the difference it makes. 320x480, lot's more real estate.

    Treonauts have had reason to celebrate this weekend as the first ‘real’ images of our future Treo 700p (below) running PalmOS were released… [Please note that this particular pre-production unit was marked Treo XXX and thus the 700p naming is an assumption throughout.]



    This particular Treo 700p is branded for Sprint and as such is a CDMA smartphone which is great news for Sprint subscribers but sadly means that there is still no clue of a next generation GSM Treo… According to previous rumours (below) of new Treo releases in 2006, the first GSM Treo is likely going to be offered by Cingular in the US and other carriers in Europe around April/May while a Treo 700p GSM version will have to wait until September.

    January 2006: Treo 700w (WM 5.0, EV-DO) currently available exclusively from Verizon (CDMA) until June 2006 and from other carriers (CDMA & GSM) thereafter
    March-April 2006: Treo 700p (Palm OS, EV-DO) exclusively from Sprint (CDMA) for 6 months and from other carriers (CDMA & GSM) thereafter
    April-May 2006: "Hollywood" - rumoured to be called Treo 800p is expected to be offered primarily by Orange and/or Vodafone in Europe and in US likely to be launched by Cingular
    April-May 2006: "Lowrider" - a sub-$300 device and entry-level smartphone, compatible to previous-generation network radios (like those found on the current Treo 650)


    As previously reported (see Treo “Hollywood” = Treo 800p?) and now confirmed by these images, the Treo 700p shares the exact same casing as the Treo 700w running Windows Mobile.

    However, Palm appears to have changed the positioning of the navigation buttons (below) in the upgrade from the Treo 650 to the Treo 700p. Whereas the Calendar and Mail buttons to the left and right of the 5Way remain unchanged, the Call Answer, Call End, Home and Menu buttons have been shuffled into new locations – presumably after usability studies showed this to be better (?).



    Finally, let’s see what has surfaced about the specifications of the new Treo 700p:

    Reception is supposed to be ‘spectacular’
    Runnning PalmOS Garnet v5.4.9
    1.2MP Camera (1280x1024)
    Bluetooth v1.2
    pTunes, SprintTV, Documents to Go 8 all in ROM
    Blazer 4.5
    64MB Memory with 54MB User-Available
    320x320 screen
    FAT32 driver support (to use SD Cards larger than 2GB)
    EVDO Radio (High Speed Wireless Data 400–700kbps)
    Can receive call while using 1xEvDo, but cannot call and browse at the same time (limitation of 1xEvDo)
    New web like picture album interface, new facelift for album and picture application
    Menu button moved to bottom left shift spot
    SharkMsg-like “SMS after call” functionality
    Flashing ‘Alerts’ asterix replaced by little golden bell icon
    Green button is Call Answer button, Phone button for Contacts
    New "fast mode" in Blazer
    No WiFi drivers installed and no ability to test a WiFi SD card
    Very large new DbCache of over 10MB for a _much_ speedier user experience
    So, is the 700p a worthy upgrade and something for Treonauts to get excited about? Well, I certainly think so! For starters, a faster UI and now enough memory to store _all_ of my applications is fantastic. Then there’s the _much_ faster wireless data connectivity provided by EV-DO and the improved 1.3MP camera. Finally, I really like the casing which I’ve had the opportunity to play around with on my own Treo 700w. On the minus front, of course I would like to experience the next generation PalmOS instead of a Garnet revision but this is likely going to have to wait until 2007 and the lack of WiFi drivers (at least in this pre-production model) is also disappointing.

    Naturally though I wouldn’t mind getting a chance to play around with my very own Treo 700p now to really see everything that it has to offer but I guess that we’ll have to wait just a little bit longer for that…

    [Thank you to everyone who sent me tips and pics about this over the weekend.]

    I think I just saw a guy that looks like Insertion's Avatar walking down Bourbon Street with two Asia girls celebrating Mardi Gras. The girls were getting pelted with beads.

    I'm thinking that if I saw a guy that looked like Insertion's avatar I'd be running the other way, asian hotties or not.
